it's starting

The other day my brother came home with this from a customer, and it's starting again. This Polish lady is one of the best bakers I have ever received from. It's a sort of pound cake, with some - but not too much! - fruit inside. and decorated so just right.

Last year she gave him a gingerbread cake - rectangular, sliced horizontally with peach or apricot jam inside. A chocolate ganache over all, and sliced almonds pressed into the bottom.  I haven't forgotten it!  I've been wanting to replicate it ever since.  She could really open a bakery.

You can bet we're making short work of this.


  1. Oh, that's so pretty. Anymore, I like the look of simply-decorated desserts best. How kind of her too. :)

  2. I assumed this was from a bakery! Enjoy. :)

    Blessings, Debbie

  3. I didn't know people still baked like that! What a wonderful treat for you and your brother. And happy late birthday, btw. I meant to say that to you on Friday and completely forgot.

  4. This cakes looks scrumptious! How lucky you are to get to enjoy such a treat :-)
